>> you know who else has a great body? >> stephanie miller. >> the charlie calls her booba licious. >> charlie crist? i really don't think it's charlie crist. >> stephanie: let me take a second to say woot. >> obama: with your stories and your struggles i return to the white house more determined and more inspired than ever about the work there is to do and the future that lies ahead. [ cheering ] >> stephanie: yea! kermit flail. okay. >> karl rove is saying shove it. >> stephanie: all right. >> moving your hands back and forth isn't a kermit flail. >> stephanie: he did just call me ms. miller.
7:32 am
i said thank you for finally giving me the respect i'm entitled for being solely responsible for the president's re-election. >> i think john yarmouth had something to do with it, too. >> stephanie: from the great state of kentucky. good morning congressman. >> good morning, stephanie. >> stephanie: it is a good morning, is it not sir? >> oh, yeah. it is a fantastic morning. i've been watching you this morning -- actually watching is not a -- the accurate term because my eyes haven't focused yet. there was a lot of bourbon last night. >> stephanie: i'm guessing kentucky bourbon. yeah, me too. you and me both. so where do we even start? as you know, i've been railing against all of these media story lines that they've been feeding us for. the enthusiasm gap, the youth aren't going to turn out. it is so close it is so close. you know, look at what happened. what a great day to be an american, huh? >> well, it is. talking about that, obviously
7:33 am
kentucky was not in play in the presidential election. but we had literally hundreds of people who went to ohio to walk precincts and talk to voters in the cincinnati area and i think you know that makes a difference but the enthusiasm and the amount of time and energy that so many of kentuckians put into this race even when they knew that kentucky's electoral votes weren't in play is really inspiring. so it was great. i mean this is bittersweet. aspects to this. ben chandler lost in kentucky. which i thought was unfortunate. my good friend betty sutton in ohio northeastern ohio lost. but by in large, i mean you just can't -- overestimate the significance of the way this country averted attempts to
7:34 am
purchase -- >> stephanie: despite the efforts in so many states. that's what was really heartwarming. i said this. it is going to create a backlash. you're going to make people want to vote even more. look what happened right? >> guys like sheldon adelson and the koch brothers and even my good friend, steve cohen had a guy who spent $2 million of his own money running and barely -- i don't even think he got 25% of the vote in that district. the linda mcmahon -- everything. i'm just thrilled with the rejection of that whole concept. >> stephanie: money can't prop up bad candidates like mitt romney like linda mcmahon. i said this as a woman congressman, we've talked about this. they love to do that story oh, the gender gap is gone. i knew it wasn't going -- this was the year of the woman, was it not? >> well, certainly. with tammy baldwin and clair claire
7:35 am
mccaskill, of course. and the new hampshire -- >> stephanie: tammy duckworth elizabeth warren. >> i knew i had some conversations with tammy. what a great person, a great american. just been -- it's been an inspirational day. >> stephanie: congressman, i have to say personally, i could not have been happier to see joe walsh and allen west go -- somebody particularly virulent, nasty, obstructionist republicans in your body. what do you think? >> well, absolutely. and these are the flamethrowers. and that's -- people have asked me all the time, what do you think -- where do you think the american people are? i said the american people are rejecting craziness. they don't want loud people in the government. they want people who actually are dedicated to making government work. not just to basically sink the ship. alan west was one of those people. joe walsh obviously a maniac. you know.
7:36 am
so yeah, that's the big lesson that comes out of this. >> stephanie: i don't know if you've heard anything but we're hearing this morning there may even be a recount in the michele bachmann race because it was so close. >> yeah. well that's another -- even if she ends up being re-elected, the fact that she was -- she made it by the skin of her teeth. she's a prodigious fund-raiser and all of that but people still don't want people who are -- who just want to burn the house down. and that's what -- she's one of those people. so i think the atmosphere will be better in the next congress. i really do. this kind of irrational obama hatred and -- obviously has to disappear because there's no mileage to be gained anymore in that. so i think things will be better. >> stephanie: i love that my producer just held the sign up that said john yarmuth won last night, too. i'm like no kidding. >> congratulations on your win.
7:37 am
>> stephanie: of course he won. he's john yarmuth. he's beloved! [ laughter ] >> thank you. i had a very gratifying victory. i think a very special relationship with my district. obviously with the stephanie liberal -- stephanie miller show. >> stephanie: same thing. i'll legally change my name. >> i can keep coming on for the next two years anyway on your show. >> stephanie: congressman, do you think there is going to be any difference in how you know, the house -- obviously the senate now has become even more democratic which is great but are we going to have the same kind of on be structionism and gridlock especially with this fiscal cliff coming up? >> i actually don't think we will. i've talked to enough republicans over the last six months or so. to get the feeling that they really are tired of the game that's being played. and some very, very nice,
7:38 am
thoughtful freshmen, even though they vote crazy, they're reasonable people. this isn't the best way to spend my life. they really do want to get something done. they're getting heat from their constituents too. saying we may not like government all the time but we need one. we need one that works. so i think there really is going to be an effort to move things along. obviously now that the president is holding all of the cards in terms of leverage, they all face the charge of irrationally blocking anything if they don't try to get along. particularly with the senate now. that's a huge difference with the new complexion of the senate. >> stephanie: absolutely. i think boy, that was a pretty loud message last night, wasn't it congressman? the republicans in congress didn't hear that, i don't know when they will right? >> absolutely. my senator mitch mcconnell he's up for re-election in 2014.
7:39 am
he's going to face a stiff challenge and he's already being -- painted with that -- rightfully so, the obstructionist label. if he doesn't -- i think he's pragmatic enough to understand that if he's seen as the person who holds up everything and he's going to risk being sent back to kentucky. >> stephanie: that's right congressman yarmuth. he's the one so famously that came out and said his number one priority was to make sure the president doesn't get re-elected. okay. you lost! number one priority. now what is your number one priority? >> exactly. and that is the statement i made last night in my victory speech. but his number one priority right now because i know mitch very well will be to get mitch re-elected. i think you're going to see a different person in that position. >> stephanie: let's all hope so. i thought -- boy, i was glad that mitt romney was so unequivocal last night. he said this election is over.
7:40 am
the american people want us to stop partisan bickering. >> stop it. it's hard. >> i agree. >> stephanie: ann romney wants us to stop it. >> ann: stop it. >> there's the giggle. >> stephanie: congressman yarmuth, we'll talk to you as we roll along. thank you. congratulations. >> great to talk to you. congratulations. >> stephanie: go sleep off that bourbon. >> mcconnell can go back to the galapagos islands. >> stephanie: we feel badly about the skeeters of the world. i forget which one this was. >> skeeter stock. >> stephanie: skeeter stock didn't go so well. >> thanks to your generous donations to skeeter pac obama derangement pictures presents the film of the year. >> we're the laughingstock of the world right now. >> come see skeeter stock. >> i thought was a very good president. obama isn't. >> three days of peace, love and
